Shining sun and an immaculate golf course set the stage for the second round of the Hope Valley Junior. 

 

In the Boys’ Division it was Will Hartman of Marvin, N.C. who climbed his way into first place after a second round 1-under-par 69 put him at 3-under-par for the tournament and one clear of the field. 

 

Hartman carded four birdies during his round Wednesday, collecting one on the front nine, before birdieing holes 10, 14 and 15 to finish one in the red. 

 

Just behind Hartman is Clark Xander Goboy of Chesapeake, VA and Andrew Gregory of Inman, S.C., who are tied for second at 2-under-par. Hope Valley has been all it is billed to be, with firm and slick greens making scoring tough on the competitors. Goboy coasted with a second round 2-over-par 72, while Gregory hung around with a 1-over-par 71. 

 

Owen Kose of Holly Springs, N.C. is sitting in solo fourth at 1-under-par for his tournament, after a second round 1-over-par 71. Kose had plenty of birdies on his round, rolling in five total on holes one, three, eight, 14 and 15. 

 

Rounding out the top five are Branden Boyce of Spring Lake, N.C. and Hampton Roberts of Cary, N.C. Boyce had the low round of the day, coming in with a 3-under-par 67 that catapulted him to even par for the Championship, on the back of six total birdies. Roberts had a solid day in his own right, with a 1-under-par 69 to stay steady through two rounds.

 

In the Girls Division it’s anyone's tournament, with five players within three shots of the lead, and eight within five shots. 

 

Leading the tournament at 4-over-par is Madison Messimer of Myrtle Beach, S.C. Messimer, the 18-hole leader in this event, continued her steady play, following up her first round 1-over-par 71 with a 3-over-par 73. 

 

Right on her heels is Kate Barber of Savannah, GA.  Barber has been incredibly consistent as well, with two 2-over-par 72’s to show through her first and second rounds, she sits in solo second at 5-over-par. 

 

Sawyer Brockstedt of Rehoboth Beach, DE, Kiera Bartholomew of Wake Forest, N.C. and Melanie Walker of Burke, VA are all tied for third at 7-over-par. Brockstedt followed up her 74 from the first round with a 3-over-par 73, a round that included a birdie on the second, and an eagle on the Par-4 fifth hole. Bartholomew carded one birdie on her day, rolling one in on the Par-4 7th. 

 

Walker had the round of the day herself, an even par 70 that saw her vault into a tie for fourth place at 7-over-par through her first two rounds. She played great golf on Wednesday, carding birdies on holes seven and 14 to highlight a very strong round moving into Thursday. 

 

Ella Perna of Durham, N.C. carded the second lowest round of the day, an impressive 1-over-par 71 to shoot her into solo sixth for the tournament. Perna was level all day, playing the last 14 holes in 1-under-par, carding her birdie on the seventh.

Hope Valley Country Club was founded in 1926 and the course was designed by the world-famous golf course architect, Donald J. Ross, in coordination with landscape architect Robert Cridland. Unlike many of his projects, Ross personally supervised the planning and construction of Hope Valley. Centered around its Aymar Embury II Clubhouse, the course has hosted many significant golf events. They include the U.S. Amateur Qualifying for both Men and Women, the U.S. Senior Men’s Qualifying, the North Carolina Amateur Championship, Carolinas Junior Boys’ Championship, Women’s Western Junior National Championship and Carolinas Junior Girls’ Championship.

 

The tournament moment, of which the club members may be proudest of, took place on April 1, 1945 when Byron Nelson won the Durham Open at Hope Valley. This was his fourth victory out of winning eleven tournaments in a row, a PGA Tour record. Hope Valley membership recognizes that proud stewardship of these outstanding traditions requires that their club continue to revere the old and embrace the new in order to share their commitment to the great game of golf with upcoming generations.
